GOODLETTSVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A young man in Goodlettsville is facing charges of animal abuse after two dogs had to be euthanized.

According to the arrest report, two dogs owned by the suspect, Cameron Taylor, 19, had to be euthanized because they were in such poor condition.

According to the arresting officer, Taylor was seen by a neighbor abusing one of the dogs in his driveway in Goodlettsville.

The neighbor said she was driving when she witnessed the incident. She kept driving because she said she did not want to draw attention to herself. She later called police.

Taylor's mother reportedly came home and found her son's animals near death.

According to reports, Taylor told police he wanted to kill the dogs because he hates his mother and wanted to leave home.

He was taken to Skyline Medical Center in Madison for a mental evaluation and charged with aggravated animal cruelty.
